She has been teaching English for 28 years now, ever since she was a university student. She is a BA Philology graduate, specializing in the Romanian and English languages, and she also has an MA degree in Applied Modern Languages, University of Bucharest. Her academic journey led her to explore the intricate linguistic and cultural dimensions of these two diverse languages.


On the other hand, applied linguistics, as an interdisciplinary field of study that investigates the practical aspects of language use plays a critical role in exploring the connections between linguistics, language education, and culture and it allowed her to trace its influences, to marvel at dialectal and register diversity and gave her the opportunity to become a fair connoisseur of the English language.


Her career journey - teacher of English and inspector for the Modern Languages Dept. at the Ialomița County School Inspectorate -  has been one of personal growth, cultural awareness, and professional opportunities, highlighting the importance of philology in preserving linguistic and cultural heritage, primarily. 


She is therefore motivated by a deep commitment to education, a desire to enhance language learning, and a dedication to shaping effective curriculum and guidance. Her motivation stems from fostering a conducive learning environment, promoting student development, and contributing to the improvement of educational practices.
